One such change might be in the area of cameras.
I've been fascinated with cameras since I got my hands on one when I was very young (maybe 8 years old?), but the cost of film and processing was a limiting factor for me.
The next step for me was when I had the option to "develop" my photos into a CD rather than actual prints. It cost less and opened up the possibility of photo processing and sharing.
And then I got a digital camera ... and I haven't looked back. If you've ever been to my Flickr account, you'll see what I mean.
I've come close to wearing out two digital cameras already.
One of the best parts of that is that I can show my family where I'm seeing as I travel, and where I live ... in an instant!!
Given that I live all on the other side of the world from my family, these photos help keep us closer.
In days gone by, if a family member moved halfway around the world, at best they might exchange letters now and then. Now, through emails, social media, and photos, my widely scattered family and I keep up to date on a daily basis.
